This is an excellent reference tool. Both the diagrams and the descriptions are very clear -- among the best I've seen.

I have just one comment, which concerns the two popular hybrid configurations that you have accurately listed as "Camber-Rocker-Camber" and "Rocker-Camber-Rocker." The companies that use these camber types tend to name them from the inside out, i.e., they start with what's between the bindings and then go to what's under the bindings or at the tips. Camber-Rocker-Camber becomes just Rocker & Camber, or R.C. (as Never Summer calls it), and Rocker-Camber-Rocker becomes Camber/Rocker, or CamRock (as Nidecker and Jones call it).

Hopefully this will help avoid any potential confusion about how these configurations are employed by board makers.
